“Very Good”
Reviewed 27 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Well equipped cottage with comfy bed. Warm throughout with night storage heaters and top up heating. Location about 1.5 miles outside Fort William good views of the canal and mountains only spoilt a bit by nearby industrial estate.

“Great Location”

Lock Keeper's Cottage is situated right alongside the Caledonian Canal, and has wonderful views from the Upper Deck windows. To the left you can see along the canal, and to the right Neptune's Staircase, also the swing bridges opening the road and railway to let the boats through, and of course the magnificent Jacobite steam train that passes once or twice a day. From the porch on the other side of the cottage there is Ben Nevis in all his glory.
The Upper Deck itself is well equipped, the bed is extremely comfy, heating very effective, but I feel the soft furnishings in the lounge could be upgraded.
Lots of walks, beautiful scenery, picnic spots, friendly locals.

“Perfect start to our Honeymoon”

The lock keepers cottage upper deck was perfect for us. Warm, comfortable, homely and very well equipped which meant that we could cook up great dinners. We loved the roaring log fire which was perfect in the evening and on the one rainy day that we had.

The location is great and on one day we hired a canoe from the nearby rock hopper hire hub to paddle up the canal, and on another we hired bikes and cycled over towards Inverness along a lovely wooded mountain road.

Would 100% recommend this cottage.

“Simply Perfect!”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Perfectly sized for 2 guests, all furnishings and equipment in Upper Deck are first class. Spotlessly clean everywhere and fabulous views as a bonus. Owner very helpful and certainly goes the extra mile to please - along with her housekeeper. I would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation and actually look forward to returning.
